Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell puts in full practice Thursday
Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell practiced in full on Thursday. It's somewhat surprising news because Bell has a sprained foot and isn't expected to play for a few more weeks. He remains very unlikely to play Sunday night against the Bears.
It's an encouraging sign, but it won't mean much for this week and probably next week. The Steelers are aiming to get Bell on the field after their Week 5 bye. The bigger issue here is how much running room will Bell see behind Pittsburgh's horrible offensive line? And will he be splitting carries with Isaac Redman , Felix Jones , and/or Jonathan Dwyer ? Bell had a lot of supporters during the summer, but this injury and Pittsburgh's offense, which is all out of sorts right now, has really lowered his fantasy value. You shouldn't expect him to be more than a flex option this year.
